Just preparing for the inevitable.
My GS2 officially sux because it didn't warp the space-time continuum to a spot where I was already at AT&T buying it lol. Instead I woke up too early and have a 2 1/2 wait for the store to open lol! J/k I'm sure I'll love it. But you're right.... It's inevitable that people will b@tch...just look at the Epic 4G Touch forum. Lol although they do have a valid point with LOS.... They should only blame themselves for going with Sprint tho hahaha.
My Samsung Galaxy SII sucks because it's not 4.5" like the Sprint and T-Mobile versions.
Post a pic of YOUR SGS2.
Which is why I am waiting to see the T-Mo version. Just have to check it out first before doing anything....and maybe check out what Apple has to offer as the GPS is so important to me and every other Samsung device I have had has had horrible GPS (Captivate and current Infuse). My iPhones were perfect when it came to GPS. If the new iPhone has at minimum a 4" screen I **might** once again consider it. Waiting another 10 days to check both out won't kill me.
because it has no LTE, the only reason I am not buying it today
You'll have to start:
"The ?Official? Post your AT&T GS2 G-Rated Pinups" thread for that.
I just got mine, it's charging as I type
Will post the negatives soon,
That was only for the person who posted above me.
Just installed Speed Test and Quadrant and they vanished
Went back to install them and the new Marketplace appeared, how odd....
Edit: Also having problems loading pages on the Marketplace as well...
Edit2: Connection timed out "RETRY?" for the 5th time
WHOA, serious problems
32kb down, 368kb up, 262ms latency WTF
Red spot in the center of photos WTF
Positives so far
Check this out...
Notice the HSPA+ and 3 bars...
because.......It is 6 months old and I already bought one back in like may and have since sold it and moved on lol.
So how do you know if the speed if an issue with AT&T's stellar network or the actual phone? We all know bars frequently lie ...
My Samsung Infuse got 2.5mb down and 1mb up.
Gonna run to AT&T and get a new sim card, maybe that will do it..
Still the same crappy speeds, I wonder if it's the phone or a tower issue.....
Mine sucks because it didn't come out sooner.
I am getting 2.5mb down and about 845k up and I don't have a very strong signal where I am at.
I just ran a test on mine using Speedtest.net and I had 7.75 down and 1.09 up. It's been fluctuating between 5-8 Mbps down.....right about where my Infuse was at.
wifi range still (coming from an infuse) sucks to high heaven. i can't keep a signal outside on my patio where with my touch pro and ipod touch it was never a problem.
This is not a "my phone sucks" post, cause I actually love my new S2. But I'm a little bit confused and frustrated. I want to have all my contacts have their Facebook pic with their contact info so I synced all my Facebook friends into my contacts. But now all I have is duplicates of almost all my contacts. I have my google contacts and then my Facebook contacts right below them. I could individually go through and "join" each contact, but that would easily take 2 hours. Is there any way to just "join" all duplicate contacts? I know my Inspire did this automatically. It would prompt me any time it noticed a duplicate contact name and ask if I wanted to merge them. Anybody know how to do this?
Mine sucks because the video quality of Netflix, Hulu and YouTube suck compared to my iPhone 4. It also sucks because of the oversaturated colors. Reminds me of video streaming quality from 6-7 years ago.
You might want to return your phone then, because it sounds like you got a bad one. No such problems here. This screen is as good or better than the Iphone 4's retina display. Don't get me wrong I think the Retina display on the Iphone 4 is beautiful. but it takes nothing away from the Iphone 4 to say this is just as good, perhaps better because it is far larger.
Either that or Outdoor Visibility Mode is on. Check in the video settings while playing a video.
I'm going to turn this into an AT&T SUCKS because contrary to their spec sheet for the galaxy s, there was NO FM TUNER and NO STEREO HEADSET with my phone! It's not a game breaker for me but if you list something on the spec sheet you should at least include it with the device, or a note (such as in a disabled FM Tuner) saying the function will be available with a future update. Guess I have to root this phone after all, I was hoping I wouldn't need to but if I need an xda fix for the FM tuner then it's time to find a way to root.
The phone itself is great, I've had no issues. My only issue is that the battery life could be better. I haven't had some red tint in my camera photos like some other people mentioned, and the TouchWiz 4 is so much better than 3 in terms of performance. There's no severe lag when I start the phone up, even my 8GB MicroSD which took about 8 minutes to scan media files in my captivate takes only about 20 seconds on the GS2. I wish it had more of the older live wallpaper options of the captivate but it's no big deal.
Wait one more issue. The music app leans doesn't have enough bass, not even when I hook it up to my car. I have to turn on the Bass Enhancement option and then crank the bass up all the way in my car stereo to even get it to sound decent (And I'm not the type of guy to roll with loud bass thumps and annoying vibration noise every 30 feet either). But I suppose I can live with it since I normally use a flash drive anyway.
Are you using bluetooth or a wired connection? With my phone (epic), a wired connection gives me ZERO bass. It has to be bluetooth.
Yeah I was surprised at the no headphones myself. I was actually discussing with my Wife on the way home how there was almost nothing in the box other than the phone.
And on another totally stupid note, the box was crappy too. The Captivate box was a NICE box. So nice I put it away and it was ready for me when I sold my Captivate. The SGS II box is kind of cheap.
I still have mine from my captivate and it's in perfect condition so I wasn't too concerned, but on the accessories tab in the phone's spec sheet it's there under "included accessories" which I naturally assumed meant it would be included. But I guess they are using a new definition of "included," perhaps an old extinct one they resurfaced just for advertising purposes?
And usually a green check mark means that particular phone has a certain feature, so who knows why there's no FM radio app. I tried downloading the FM Tuner widget for the i9000 GS2's, but it's unable to scan the FM band (Meaning the hardware is either disabled or nonexistent).
Wired, specifically to a Bose stereo in my car through the aux jack. My captivate had nice rich sound though, I can't understand why it's so different. Shouldn't the sound quality be better? My phone is an iPod replacement, so proper audio quality is a big deal to me. I may take my phone back and see if I just got a dud audio jack or something, the sound seems to be coming more from the right than the left as well. I tried headphones and a new aux cable with no difference. I haven't heard anyone else complaining about the sound though so it may just be a bad jack or something.
Can anyone with a full range stereo confirm they have this issue as well?
